RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Blaine Boyer.

2011

Boyer had a front-row seat in the D-Backs' bullpen debacle last season, making 54 appearances and having the good fortune to escape those outings with a 4.26 ERA despite a free pass issued for every batter he fanned. There has been nothing from him over the last two seasons to suggest he will repeat the 8.4 K/9IP mark from his 2008 season with the Braves and the more recent trends here suggest Triple-A or a new organization are more likely than a long-term place in the D-Backs' plans. If you are handicapping the closer situation in Arizona on draft day, pick another pony.

2010

On the surface, it appears that a heavy workload in Atlanta may have caught up to Boyer, as his strikeout rate dipped from 8.4 K/9IP in 2008 to 4.8 in 2009 over stops in Atlanta, St. Louis and Arizona. Despite missing fewer bats, Boyer gave up just one home run last season after surrendering 10 in 76 appearances (72 innings) in 2008. He'll be among the cast competing for a bullpen spot with the D-Backs during spring training, but he's never put together a strong enough season in a setup role to merit consideration as a staff filler.

2009

Boyer did not pitch after Sept. 17 as he struggled in the second half due to his high workload. He was among the National League leaders in appearances during the first half and posted a 3.93 ERA, but struggled with an 11.17 ERA in the second half. Boyer strikes out batters at a good rate (8.38 K/9IP) with strong control (67:25 K:BB ratio). He'll be a key set-up man for the Braves, but his overuse could negatively impact his 2009 performance.

2008

After a tantalizing major league debut in 2005 with 33 strikeouts in 35 innings, Boyer missed all of 2006 with shoulder surgery and then spent most of 2007 at Triple-A Richmond. While his decent strikeout rate returned after the surgery, he struggled with his control (over six walks per nine innings at Triple-A). He'll need better command to find success in the majors, but he'll contend for a spot in the bullpen as he's out of options.

2007

Boyer hurt his shoulder at the end of the 2005 season, and then had a setback that required surgery and caused him to miss all off 2006. Boyer had a tantalizing major league debut in 2005 with 33 strikeouts in 35 innings before getting hurt. He walks a few too many batters to think he'll be a star in the bullpen, but he could carve out a sizable role if healthy this spring.

2006

Aided by a move to the bullpen in the middle of the season, Boyer increased his strikeout rate in his first year at Double-A. Promoted to an Atlanta team desperate for middle relief help, Boyer continued to look sharp with a 33 strikeouts in 35 innings before being shut down for a sore shoulder in September. He walks a few too many batters to repeat his early success, but he'll likely leave spring training with a job in the middle of the bullpen and is someone to keep an eye on.

2005

Boyer had a strong ERA for high Single-A Myrtle Beach and was protected on the 40-man roster, but his strikeout rates don't indicate he'll have great success at the next level. There are better pitching prospects in the Braves system.
